Biggest Hits of Summer

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - John Bush
A pretty good way to add to your collection a batch of songs that should belong to everyone, Biggest Hits of Summer doesn't shirk from providing 18 great tracks with no filler. About half of the inclusions are true summer classics, such as "Love Is Like A Heat Wave," "Summer in the City," "Seasons in the Sun," or "Beach Baby," and yes, the versions are the original hits. Biggest Hits of Summer also airs a parade of lesser hits that are no less enjoyable "Build Me Up Buttercup," "Put a Little Love in Your Heart," as well as separate vocal and instrumental versions of "Theme from 'A Summer Place'" by the Lettermen and Percy Faith.
